Cut Out Screens

Room dividers create a wow factor in a space. Their function is to separate different spaces within a room. There are so many different types of room dividers one could use. The following room dividers have been laser cut into different shapes, patterns and sizes.

Timber Room Dividers

Timber room dividers are often used to introduce a natural feeling to a space. This material can be crafted into such wonderful features of a room. Sometimes using timber and metal helps change the look of the divided space. Timber is often viewed at its finest with natural light beaming behind it. Leave it natural or paint it a colour to tie in with the space, the choice is yours!

Unique Room Dividers

Who said that room dividers needed to be simple? There are different techniques and ways to divide a space that completely changes the atmosphere of the space. Some ways are using unique mirror designs that help widen the space or even a simple indoor plant display that helps bring life to the environment. Water running down a glass panel in a reception area dividing the space completely invites one into the room and allows them to feel relaxed and welcome.

As much as we are found inside concentrating on the interiors of the home, we never take for granted the importance of the connection between the outdoors and the inside. Landscaping and the interiors need to coexist and compliment each other.

What we like to do is create a connection, a talking point between the two. Therefore, this can be achieved by introducing a external texture like stone cladding, a live wall and even concrete works beautifully. Bringing in plants and decorative slips in votives is also a fantastic way to show the connection between the two spaces.

Wood Cladding

Cladding a wall is a great way to bring a sense of the outdoors, in. By using the same cladding material that is used on the exterior: inside, a seamless flow is created between the two spaces. Here are some beautiful examples of interior spaces that use cladding to create a link with the outside.

Stone Cladding

Using stone to clad your walls is also a great way to form a link from the outdoors. By using the same stone found on your exterior cladding, flooring or in your garden, a flow is created between the two spaces. This is the same case when you use a similar shade from the stone found outside.

Plant Wall

There could not be a better way to incorporate nature into a space, than by literally bringing it indoors. Be it real or fake, bringing greenery indoors will liven up the space, making it feel more open and fresh. You are creating a connection from the outside to the inside which is most important.

Hosting a dinner, breakfast or brunch can seem like a daunting task to some. However, we have some very simple tips, helping you to host the perfect get-together.

Inspiration Images:


Our first tip to you:

Make use of what you already have! There is no need to go out and break the bank. Your current cutlery and crockery can be used. You may, however, need to buy a few odds and ends, or get creative! There are thousands of DIYs you could do to mimic a store bought item. Click here to find thousands of table setting projects that you can do yourself.

Tip Two:

It is helpful to know what type of place setting you will need, in order to determine how to set out the layout. For example, you will not put together a full place setting if you are catering for a relaxed brunch. Here is a chart to help you put together your place setting:

Breakfast Setting:

  • Fork on the left of the plate
  • Knife on the right of the plate
  • Spoon on the right of the knife
  • Teacup and saucer on the right of the spoon
  • Tumbler above the knife

Lunch Setting:

  • Both forks, small and big, on the left of the plate
  • Knife on the right of the plate
  • Spoon on the right of the knife
  • Tumbler above the knife, offset to the right

Dinner Setting:

  • This is similar to the lunch setting, however, you may now add a wine glass on the right of the tumbler.

Tip Three:

You can brighten up any table setting with some plants, either store bought, or picked straight from your garden.

  • Pick a slip of rosemary, place it on your rolled napkin, and tie a bow around it.
  • Place some leaves and flowers around a few candles.
  • Clean up some glass jars, add in some water, and place your flowers into the jars.


These are some simple and beautiful ways to brighten up your table setting.

Tip Four:

Table linen can be a fun and quirky way to liven up your table settings. Choose a simple table cloth, paired with patterned napkins and tableware, or, choose a lively table cloth, paired with simple tableware. The possibilities are endless! Here are some beautiful examples of table linen.


Woolworths has a lovely variety of table linen to choose from:

Tip Five:
